We've taken 3, 5, & 7 day cruises with awesome service, shopping & entertainment.   We had the hopes that a 10 day cruise would have loads of things to do.  There was 2 shops & 2 jewelry stores on this cruise with the same sale every day 2 shirts for $20.  The staffing for restaurants and lounges were very inadequate on this cruise.  We would have to wave staffing for drinks at the lounges & restaurants.  Waiter/Waitress were not concerned with their service for cruisers.  The food choices were the same each night, very little changed on the dinner menu.  The entertainment was the same music every day, I feel they should have had a different set of music every other night.  Our room steward was awesome always making sure the room was cleaned and supplied with fresh towels.
